now, we're counting down to tonight's presidential debate. mitt romney's motorcade just pulled up at the debate hall. president obama's expected to arrive in denver any minute as well. we'll be talking with top supporters of each candidate. the former new york city mayor rudy giuliani, he'll join us live this hour. also we'll be hearing from both candidates' wives in special cnn interviews. today, by the way, is the obama's 20th wedding anniversary. so what's it like spending the night with the romneys? i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> 34 days from the presidential election but much more importantly right now at least right now we've reached what may be the most decisive night of the 2012 campaign, the first presidential debate at the university of denver. after weeks of downplaying expectations, mitt romney's campaign insiders are finally opening up about what they really think can be accomplished tonight. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta is in denver getting ready to set the scene. jim. >> reporter: wolf, the romney campaign sees the polls m
. the problem for mr. romney, well, presidential elections are decided by electoral votes. and in that puzzle, mitt's chances are starting to crumble like a poorly constructed game of genga. it's still a close race in virginia and florida, with the president up by two in the old dominion. it's ohio with the president opening up a lead of eight points in the buckeye state, where voting is under way. with ohio joining pennsylvania, are iowa and new hampshire turning increasingly blue, that puts the president at 265 electoral votes. mitt romney would have to run the table of every other swing state to get to victory. and clearly, romney's so-called supporters are now reaching for desperate measures. >> on the eve of the first presidential debate, a bombshell is about to be dropped on the white house because tonight you'll hear from barack obama like you've never heard from him before. >> oh, yes, that was the introduction last night before fox aired tape of a 2007 speech by then-candidate obama to a group of black ministers in which he criticized the response to hurricane katrina and provided ce
tonight will the moderator of the presidential debate will ask mr. romney about the 47 comment. will they ask about this particular video that shows then senator obama showing that the neglect of new orleans was racial. >> down in new orleans, where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later. there is a federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the staford act and when you get federal matter you have to give a 10 percent match from the local government. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the staford act. they said this is too serious of a problem and we can't expect new york city to lebuild on its own. forget that dollar. that was the right thing to do. what is happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your staford act money? it makes no sense. trust me, the bullet hasn't been taken out. it tells me that the people down in new orleans doesn't care as much. >> steve: you can see it in the entirity in the daily caller.com. he said the people of new orleans got the shaft and people who suffered from 9/11 or
. the problem for mr. obama is that's debatable. it's not a fact unless you are spike lee. the presidential debate this evening should be a passionate display. he has to call out barack obama on the muddled economy. the governor has to do that in. when that happens, the president will lash back pinning romney as ruthless rich guy who wants to exploit working americans. i can't imagine romney is going to take that without a stinging come back. the debate has a potential of being rowdy. i want to see these guys go after each other. they are so dramatically apart in belief systems. every american should understand the huge gap. the pressure is on mitt romney tonight but he has plenty of verbal ammunition. in less than an hour, we will see if he uses it and that's the memo. in a moment, carl rove, dick morris, kirsten powers, leslie marshall and dennis miller will all weigh in on the debate this evening. the factor will be back after these messages.

. he looks presidential. governor romney, even though he has the experience, resume, he does not really have, in my estimation, the people skills and ability to expand. stuart: i have to get in. you have a rock oktoberfest. your business line is the restaurant business. what are you doing with that? >> we are taking over in los angeles the espn center, which used to be the 10,000 square feet -- wolfgang puck and the fabulous gene simmons are going to be hosting an event on october 15. all the proceeds will go to wounded warriors. wolfgang and i will post it. rock stars, even mr. varney may be there. the entire media will be there. we hope people come down and contribute to wounded warriors. stuart: i am flattered you would suggest such a great thing. all kinds of problems at american airlines. including rows of seats coming loose during flights. would you fly american? tom sullivan is a pilot. we will ask him about that after the break. ♪ those surprising little things she does still make you te notice. there are a million reasons why. but your erectile dysfunction that could be a que
: the electoral model has accurately predicted the last 8 presidential elections and they pick romney, so we'll wait and see. steffan, t*ubs great to se tubbs. great to see you today. jenna: we haven't talked about one of the most important things about the candidates. gregg: which is? jenna: what they are going to wear. that is a big decision. gregg: they are going to wear a suit i guarantee that. jenna: we'll take a closer look at what candidates decide to wear. since 1980 the dominant choice is a red tie. it's been chosen 19 times. it didn't help john kerry win the white house back in 2004 you do se could see he had a red tie on. gregg: it wasn't fire engine red, that was his problem. jenna: maybe. blue was picked three times. 17 times candidates have gone for a striped look. we decided to put gregg to the test, here is gregg jarrett fashion plate. red is supposed to find of bring those feelings, good feelings, positive feelings, lighten up your face a little bit. gregg: it's strong, old. jenna: that's what they say, they being the experts out there, whoever they are. there you are. gregg
a different party and you will get different answer. but the clock is ticking down. governor romney getting plenty of advice on how he should approach the president on that stage. the presidential debate commission -- the two men with stand side by side. critics a predicting the left-leaning media will portray romney as the loser no matter how he performs. bill, welcome back to the program. some are saying no matter what governor romney does tonight the headlines in the newspapers tomorrow will be -- you know, romney struggles to make it case. romney's campaign is in trouble. what say you? >> reporter: i think there are two different dispositions here. i'm irish. when i watch the debate i tend to think my guy lost unless he really creamed the other guy. way i think of these debates and the mainstream channels handle them is like the music man. president obama is like professor harold hill. he sold these people all these band uniforms and instruments and he has this krissy system that doesn't teach them how to play. then it's a climate i can scene at the end. the town, the mayor, they think
this is very confusing. is the romney campaign betting they can get through by just confusing the american public into submission? >> alex, if i were the kind of person who got depressed by a lack of specificity and seriousness in presidential politics i would be very depressed. this cycle you can judge? in different ways. the lack of specificity is ghouling for three reasons, two serious guys, two, the country has big challenges and three both campaigns are enunciated this principle on big important serious things, rather than have the candidate be specific at all about what they do, they say really it's better for the public to have this the rashed out with congress after i'm elected. the president says the same thing about social security reform. i find it unorthodox and maybe i need to cover a few more to cover the romney campaign, a major float of a proposal in a local television interview the day or two before the debate. seems like the $17,000 cap -- >> bucket. >> is actually, i think, an interesting idea, but it's not one that governor romney is apparently actually proposing and no

romney has been debating a lot this year. just real quickly. >> i think it's very important. this is the highest influxion moment of any campaign, particularly a presidential campaign. and so he's pretty good on his feet but again every answer is a minute and a half. you have to be hone and sharp and get your few points across that will then be covered by the media and form the broader public's opinion of what happened. >> jennifer: exactly. so interesting. i'll be watching. great popcorn moment. that's democratic strategist jill alper. thanks for joining us, jill. up next, all of the recent budget cuts have the ranks of union workers and public employees cut as well. we're going to tell you why they may be down but they're certainly not out. and is there anything worse than a whiny billionaire? well maybe a whiny republican billionaire. we'll tell you what has sheldon adelson so cranky. you're watching "the war room" only on current tv. how are you ever going to solve the problem if you don't look at all of
believe in that larger idea of the narrative, what should the narrative be for romney tonight and should it be let's take this one great idea, pound it home as many times as you can or hope something sticks? >> no, the former. look, american presidential elections are usually decided on which candidate the public at large feels has the best vision of the future. our presidential elections are generally speaking, not about the past, but about the future. that's number one. so, in case of the narrative. number two, that we know that in politics as in so much else in life, after these debates are over, there will be a lot of people who can tell you specifically what any candidate said, but they will know how that candidate made them feel. so, the object and target for both candidates in the debates is for people to walk away feeling the person who handled it best. certainly people they want specifics, so governor romney, he needs to tell how with some detail his administration will be different from not just the obama administration, but from the president bush. with president obama, his ch
, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> reporter: but the day's events quickly were overshadowed by a 2007 speech of then presidential candidate and senator obama veering off his prepared script before a predominantly black audience he seemed to imply the federal government was withholding recovery money to new orleans after hurricane katrina based on race. after september 11th and hurricane andrew in 1992 in florida, the government response was -- >> we're not going to wait for you to scratch it together because you're part of the american family. >> reporter: but after katrina, he said it was different. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> reporter: now in this speech we saw last night, the president said he didn't think the initial response to hurricane katrina was motivated by race. he said that incompetence was color blind. this speech was covered in 2007. it was aired last night on
